However I have tried speedtests to several auckland serversf (i am in Auckland) and I dont seem to be anywhere near what is shoud be getting

ian13: Hi I'm new to these forums. I have just recently improved my broadband line using cat 6 cable. This improved my attenuation from 13 db to 7.5 db . However my speed is downstream seems to be stuck at 34354 Kbps with my Attainable rate at 50299 Kbps. Does my DLM have to be reset or does it do its thing automatically, (it is past the 10 day initial period). Another thing I noticed was my RS correctable errors were at 53676 with an up time of  2 days 14 hours. Is that normal?


Hi Ian, can you clarify what you mean by "I have just recently improved my broadband line using cat 6 cable" - I presume you mean you changed your internal wiring and fixed an attenuation issue there??

We can request a DLM reset via Chorus Assure but at every step of the way through VDSL Chorus are telling us that DLM should be left to do its thing and any changes may be potentially chargeable so I am keen to understand the rationale before we do so.

Regards FireEngine
